… I count my blessings.
My first blessing is my son.
He’s there for me when I need a ladder held or an ear to listen.
Second blessing, my family and friends. They have watched me travel some bumpy roads and have been the emotional triple A that kept me going.
Next blessing, my home. When I cross the threshold on cold, dark nights I am instantly grateful. The furnace provides warmth, the lights block out the dark, and the roof keeps me dry.
A girl could get used to this kind of thing.
Blessing number four, the pets in my life. They love me unconditionally, even when I have bed head.
Fifth blessing, my physical (and emotional) strength. Aside from the occasional meltdown in my local Lowe’s store, I think I’m doing pretty good.
No list of blessings would be complete without (drum roll please) …… my ducks!
But, you knew that already.
Hmmmm, let’s see if I can come with an even six blessings. Although I would love to add Keanu Reeves to the list, I won’t. Not until I can hear his penetrating voice in person.
Yes, I know I’m fickle. First Ryan Gosling, then Clive Owen, and now Keanu. Face it, I melt for handsome men.
Okay, for my sixth blessing I’ll choose life. Ups and downs aside, life rocks. And that’s an all emcompassing blessing.
Blessed be and Happy Thanksgiving. ;}
